Whitney Museum of American Art (The Whitney) Tours

star-4.5
1,356 Reviews
Whitney Museum of American Art (The Whitney)
Set in a purpose-built Renzo Piano-designed building overlooking the High Line, the Whitney Museum is a champion of contemporary American art. It’s home to works from big names such as Edward Hopper and Georgia O’Keeffe, and its celebrated biennial serves as a launchpad for lesser-known artists. 

The Basics
The Whitney is one of NYC’s most-loved museums and tends to attract large crowds; it’s worth buying an admission ticket in advance to enjoy fast-track entry. Tickets grant you access to all exhibits, including temporary shows and the Whitney Biennial. Free tours that cover both the museum’s permanent collection and temporary exhibits take place daily, and cannot be reserved in advance. The museum’s interior is often reconfigured for new exhibitions, meaning that you can expect a different experience every time you come.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Whitney is a must-visit museum for art enthusiasts. 
  • The museum is wheelchair-accessible. 
  • There’s a restaurant and a café at the museum. 
  • Visitors age 18 and under go free. 
  • Avoid wasting time waiting for elevators by riding up to the eight floor and working your way down floor by floor via the stairs. 

How to Get There
Formerly situated on the Upper East Side, the Whitney is now located in New York’s Meatpacking District near the High Line. To get there by public transit, ride the subway (A, C, E, or L trains) to 14th Street/Eighth Avenue. 

When to Get There 
The museum is open daily throughout July and August but is closed on Tuesdays the rest of the year. On Fridays between 7pm-9.30pm, venjoy pay-what-you-wish tickets from the admissions desk. One of the best times to visit is during the Whitney Biennial, which takes over the space for several months over spring and summer in odd-numbered years, and spotlights progressive emerging artists.

The View from the Whitney’s Terraces 
With floor-to-ceiling windows and connected outdoor terraces on the sixth, seventh, and eighth floors, the Whitney offers a multitude of viewpoints from which to enjoy views of the NYC skyline. Depending on where you stand, you might find yourself gazing out upon the High Line, the Hudson River, the Empire State Building, or midtown Manhattan.
Address: 99 Gansevoort Street, New York, NY 10014, USA

I never received the link to retrieve my tickets so we were unable to go to the museum. I didn't want to buy new tickets.

The exhibit was amazing and the entry process simple. We saw the Andy Warhol Exhibit in the morning. There were long lines but since we got our tickets with viator we didn’t wait in them.

If I had known that there was no difference between buying from viator and buying my ticket from the cashier, I would not have bought it from viator. I would have bought it directly from the Whitney on line.
